George’s Drive-In

On Photo Excursions we always look for great places to eat that are not the usual we see in the year 2021 now. George’s Drive-In in Riverside on our Jurupa Valley Southern California excursion. A family roadside stop since 1974. Huge menu, food serving sizes off the scale and just great. If you are on some kind of diet, just forget it. You need the experience of eating this food!


Tea And Mufflers

For those days when you would like to have a soothing afternoon tea with friends while getting your muffler swapped out. On a Photo Excursion in Jurupa Valley, Southern California.


All Gone At The Salton Sea

It was at the North Shore near the Yacht Club. I photographed what was left in 2010. Nothing there now at all.


Returning to…

Looking forward to getting back to photographing people, fitness, fashion and more. My buddy Ashley in one of our photoshoots. Here after her appearance at the NPC National Figure Competition in Las Vegas. Makeup and hair styling by Natalie Lyle.


Burger King

Sometimes I find what we take for granted or just overlook can make for interesting photographs. Burger King in Cabazon California on a Photo Excursion.


Drive-In

The Rubidoux Drive-In, of course in Rubidoux, Southern California. Photographed on a recent Photo Excursion. Drive-ins are nostalgic for some of us.


Warbirds In Print

Always great seeing my photographs in print. An ongoing monthly ad in Air Classics Magazine for the Palm Springs Air Museum.


Southwest

Southwest has been flying in and out of Palm Springs now. Actually quite a few flights and they sure are colorful. Photographed during a meet up with some of my photographer friends.

Ashley

I do love photographing beautiful women. I have photographed my buddy Ashley a few times. Waiting and watching something going on here.


What Does It Say?

Just something you would drive by and ignore. Trash, graffiti on an abandoned billboard, and in the distance a high rise casino resort. As a scene what does it say? From a photo excursion.

Trash, graffiti on an abandoned billboard, and the Casino Morongo along a freeway frontage road in Cabazon CA.


Billboards

Somehow when you see the billboards in their entirety and location, it negates the message. On the frontage road along the 10 Freeway near Cabazon on the way to Palm Springs.


Economical

When shooting film, I have learned that it is more economical to photograph with two models at the same time. I will have to remember to do that more often.


Trains

I do also like photographing trains. I will have to do that more often. This was in Tucson on a multi-day photo excursion. Fujifilm X-Series camera using the Velvia film emulation.


With Her Shadow

Model Aristodeme in a coat with her shadow. Nothing else. Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.


Manzanar Fire Department

January 6th has become a historic date for many wrong reasons. This year January 6th 2021 I was at home. January 6th 2017 I was at the World War II Manzanar Internment Camp on a multi-day Death Valley photo excursion. Photographed with a Hasselblad digital camera system.

Mustang And Model T’s

Visitors yesterday at the Palm Springs Air Museum.


Military Flights At Palm Springs

Actually we do get a lot of military aircraft at Palm Springs. There were a few C-130’s on hand today. I was on the ramp running flights at the Palm Springs Air Museum.


Dinosaurs Pink & Xmas

The Cabazon dinosaurs, one freshly pink and the other still in Christmas attire. Photo excursion yesterday from Palm Springs to Fontana California.


Cold Moon 2020

The last full Moon of the year 2020, photographed December 29. Known as the “Cold Moon” because it occurs in the Winter of December. The camera was a Fujifilm X-H1 and the XF100-400 lens.

Chair At Roy’s Motel

Goat Canyon Trestle

A different kind of photo excursion. Flew down to see the Trestle Bridge in Goat Canyon, south of the Salton Sea near the Mexican border. The world’s largest all wood trestle and built in 1933. Photographed with my Fujifilm X-T3 camera and Fujifilm 50-140mm lens.
